About Kybella

If you have a double chin, you probably understand the frustrations of trying to get rid of excess fat cells under the chin. A double chin is particularly hard to eliminate, even if you follow a strict diet and exercise regularly. But Kybella allows us to facilitate the natural dissolution of excess submental fat cells with a few injections, helping you achieve a chiseled jawline. MAEVA Aesthetics provides highly personalized Kybella in Austin for patients with unwanted double chins and jowls.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is the world’s first FDA-approved injectable treatment for submental fullness, also known as a double chin. Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring component that encourages your body to dissolve and remove excess subcutaneous fat cells. When injected into targeted areas under the chin and jowls, Kybella catalyzes your body’s innate fat reduction capabilities to dissolve the submental fat cells. The unwanted fat cells are gradually expelled from the body, helping you achieve a chiseled jawline.

Kybella Treats:

  • Submental fullness, aka double chin
  • Jowls along the jawline

The Kybella Treatment Process

MAEVA Aesthetics performs a highly personalized Kybella treatment after a thorough evaluation. Our cosmetic providers will examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, review your medical history, and curate a personalized treatment plan for your double chin in Austin. The number of injections necessary will depend on your unique condition — some patients need up to 50 injections per session. The cosmetic provider will cleanse your facial skin, apply a numbing gel, and administer the appropriate units of Kybella into the treatment areas. The treatment should conclude within 30 minutes.

Side Effects of Kybella

Kybella produces minimal post-treatment side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, discomfort, and bruising around the treatment areas. The post-treatment side effects dissipate after a few days. You can resume most of your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a few days.

Onset & Longevity of Results

Kybella produces gradual results over several weeks and months. You should start seeing improvements 4 to 6 weeks after your first session, with continued improvements after each session. Most patients need up to 6 sessions spaced a month apart for optimal results. But once you achieve the desired results, you don’t need more treatments — the results are permanent.
